Read & Bead Summer Challenge 2021 is coming soon!

June 22, 2021

Tuesday, June 22
to Friday, August 13

Preschool-Grade 5

How it Works

1) Visit the library to register beginning June 22 and pick up a paper activity log (or download one from this page). 

2) Choose your first Brag Tag and a keychain.

3) Start reading! You don’t have to count anything – just read and complete challenges and activities. Fill in the circles on your log and earn beads and Brag Tags to decorate your necklace!

Level Up!

For example: if you read or complete an activity on Monday and earn a solid color bead, and read or complete another activity on Tuesday and earn another solid color bead, you can exchange your two solid beads for a solid fun shape or regular glitter bead.

Plan a Design

Be creative and plan a design! For example:

  • Solid Fun Shape, Pearl, Solid, Solid Fun Shape, Pearl, Solid

Available Beads:

  • solid, solid fun shape, regular glitter, pearl, sport, UV color changing, animal, fun shape glitter or jumbo bead, and special beads for completing Challenges

Important Info

You must bring your log with you to the library to collect your beads! If you are exchanging beads to level up, you must have the beads you wish to exchange with you in hand.
